I booked two full day trips, transfers to and from airport and the Blue Lagoon with this company. We were a party of four adults that included two ‘seniors’ one of whom is disabled - me! All arrangements were agreed in writing and I was provided with a full, clear Itinerary for our stay. The drivers arrived at the expected time for each occasion and the vehicles were exceptionally good. They managed my scooter (and the luggage) cheerfully - both in actions and attitudes and I was treated with dignity at all times. The day trips in a 4 x 4 were outstanding and adjusted by agreement to meet the party’s desires and weather changes. Both of the young men who escorted our party were charming, informative and great company. By the end of both days, we were a family! Thank you so much Gisele and Audunn! Without doubt you can see the Golden Circle and the South Coast cheaper by coach tour or self-drive but neither can compare with the personal service and depth of knowledge about the island, it’s geography, society and culture provided by one’s own tour guide. The journeys in a 4 x 4 are more comfortable and exciting too!! If this is your first, your only or a special trip, don’t think twice about paying for the best if you can. This was my second visit to Iceland but hopefully not my last. Thank you Ao Thur for making it such fun and with more marvellous memories -again. Hugs Mary.…

We strongly recommend the south coast tour from Arctic Adventures, especially the optional boat ride in the glacier lagoon. It was one of our favorite activities on our trip to Iceland. Our tour guides, Sindri and Ricci, were helpful and knowledgeable and made the long van trip from Reykjavik to Jökulsárlón (with several stops at beaches and waterfalls along the way) enjoyable.…

I first reached out to Arctic Advanced a few months prior to wanting to schedule this trip. I let them know I planned to propose during this trip and wanted it to be very special and very private and they sure delivered. Diana was extremely helpful with coordinating times and was always very responsive via email communication. Ao personally called me to ensure we had the best plan set up for the proposal. Upon starting our tour, Ao picked us up right out front of our accommodation in downtown Reykjavik, had water and snacks ready for us, and was so extremely friendly and easy to talk to. He provided us with so much more than just a "tour"... he educated us on Icelandic culture, history, geography, and everything in between. When it came time for the special moment he captured the most stunning pictures so perfectly. Even went as far to surprise us with champaign after the big moment! In the end, we felt like we had made a true friend and could not be happier with our decision.…

We have just returned from an amazing trip to Iceland which would have turned out very differently had we not booked with Arctic Advanced. Before we left the UK, Diana was very helpful and easy to chat to whilst suggesting the best trip for our family. Diana and Ao had the forward planning to let us know on the day we arrived that there was an extreme snow blizzard with high winds coming in over the weekend closing most of the roads and even the airport. They kindly rescheduled our day trips so that we would still get to see the Golden Circle and the South Coast. We saw breathtaking waterfalls, glaciers and many more natural wonders. All the time Ao was chatty, friendly and made us feel relaxed, as if we were traveling with a dear friend. We always felt safe in his hands whilst driving through the deep snow and blizzard conditions. If we had booked group bus excursions, these would have been cancelled and we would have returned home without seeing all those wonderful sights. I thoroughly recommend booking with Arctic Advanced as your tour can be customised to your interests and the weather, avoiding the crowds where ever possible. Thank you Ao and Diana for giving us the best possible experience. …

If you’re looking for an experience of a lifetime, tailored to your needs, you’ve found the right guys who can offer just that. Iceland is simply an otherworldly place to explore, and they know it like the back of their hand. Thanks to Arctic Advanced, who helped me organize, we enjoyed an unforgettable proposal. While our special moment turned out better than I originally planned, it didn’t quite come easy. The Icelandic weather conditions were fickle and unpredictable. Because of a sudden blizzard my proposal nearly fell into water, but not if Arctic Advanced could help it. And that’s why they were so incredibly professional and great. Because of their highly personalized service, and attention to detail, they’d set contingencies in place to ensure I could propose in the most perfect way… the day after, at sunrise, under a clear, magically colored sky. And I could not have expected or even imagined a more scenic and stunning scene to propose. They made no promises, but they sure as hell delivered. And if that doesn’t give you enough reassurance they are the best tour guides to book on the island, we’ve also walked through and alongside awesome waterfalls away from the crowds, savored some of the best local delicacies, and caught the fleeting northern light spectacle when they were nearly dissipating for the season. Because the Arctic Advanced team is just that good. Frankly, you can’t just visit Iceland only once. There’s too much to discover and to be in awe of. So we already know whom to look for again on our next visit off the beaten path.…
